A bicyclist killed in a crash with an SUV in Irvine last week was an off-duty San Bernardino County deputy, officials said Monday.

Det. Duane Parkison, 42, was killed last Wednesday while riding his bike on Shady Canyon Drive. His funeral is scheduled for Wednesday in Rancho Cucamonga, the Daily Pilot reported.

Parkison, a 15-year department veteran, had been assigned to the department's Rancho Cucamonga station for five years, according to a San Bernardino sheriff's statement.

He and a Mercedes SUV were northbound on Shady Canyon Drive when the collision occurred.

The 35-year-old woman who was driving the SUV and an infant passenger were not hurt, Irvine police said.

The cause of the accident was under investigation.
